The pattern is Sarfari friends by Chris de Longpré on ravelry.
The yarn is Cotton-ish in white. The guage is light - 3. I used size 2 knitting needles so they would be small with a tight knit. They range from 6 - 8 inches.
The lion is really cute. The patterns are great, I had a bit of trouble at first with the mane as I'd never done loop stitch in the round or in knit.
The elephant face isn't so great. I may take the trunk off and try for a softer stitching.
I don't have a need for toys, but I do like small things.
